Obscene Exposure – Adjourned Undertaking

obscene-exposureThe Prosecution alleged that our client deliberately showed his genitals to a woman a short distance from his place of employment. Our client had no prior court history and made full and frank admissions to the Police when interviewed. It was obvious from his interview that he was genuinely remorseful for his actions.

He was charged with Obscene exposure and Shaun Pascoe represented him at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court.

Through negotiations with the Police, other aggravating features of the prosecution summary were amended. Our client’s remorse, cooperation with the Police, and previous good character were highlighted in submissions before the sentencing Magistrate.

Our client was placed on Good Behaviour Bond. He was referred to a clinical psychologist to explore the underlying behaviour and to place before the Court a treatment regime to prevent a reoccurrence of a similar offence.
